Track Your Happiness
Track Your Happiness was born out of research from Harvard University, and features a scientific method of study known as “Experience Sampling,” pioneered by positive psychology luminary, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. The method, utilized by this app, involves sending a series of questions like the ones above to users throughout the day in the form of texts, emails or other prompts.
The logic is to help a user examine how they’re feeling in a specific moment when the app alerts them. This means data collected will have less bias then in a traditional survey. When using these types of apps, users often are very surprised at the data aggregated about them, not realizing how much they don’t realize they experience as they go about their days.
